Crater of Diamonds offers park visitors a one-of-a-kind experience—the
adventure of hunting for real diamonds. You’ll search over a 37 ½-acre
plowed field that is the eroded surface of an ancient, diamond-bearing
volcanic crater. It is the world’s eighth largest in surface area. If
you find a diamond, it is yours to keep.
Begin your visit at the park visitor center to view diamonds in the
rough and explore its interactive exhibits that explain why diamonds are
present here at Arkansas’s diamond site. Then, pass through the Diamond
Discovery Center on your way to prospect in the diamond search area.
Exhibits, interpretive programs, and a video show you the various ways
to search for diamonds and identify rough diamonds as you prospect.
Digging tools are available to rent.
